alexander young, he went to washington d.c., and came back home with some bacon. stuart: well, you heard the rest from there. the lady goes on to say it's a quid pro quo give us the monny because we voted for you. the question, will the president offer any hint of a bailout, bailout help for deeroit today. will he address union anger at michigan's right to work legislation? this goes to the heart of government spending and the position of organized labor in president obama's second term. we're right there in michigan. let's go to facebook. weigh in on what's happening there. will detroit get a bailout and what do you think about the unions? will they win? good questions all. now, one of the worst blowouts in nfl history. seattle seahawks beat arizona cardinals 58-0. the cardinals threw four interceptions fumbled four times and gained 154 yards and seattle undefeated at home and then there's this. the new york giants scored only 52 points in the win over the new orleans saints. the star was the rookie and he returned the kick off for touchdown and all purpose yards and kept the giants in
't be doing is trying to take away your rights to bargain for better wages. stuart: and take away your rights to bargain. is that what's at stake here? is collective bargaining a right? these are obvious questions, we'll be on it through the program and our cameras are right at the action in lansing, michigan. we're also talking to the mayor of lansing, virg bernaro next hour. and remember the chrysler workers smoking and drinking during the lunch break? two suspended and they got their jobs back. that was an arbitrator's ruling. under the union contract they were on their own time. chrysler says it disagrees with the decision, can't change it, that's the example of the union's power. and tell us what you think about the workers getting their jobs back. and we'll read some on the air. more fantasy island in california, coming up after the break, why california's green energy policies just don't work and we're also going to bring you the opening bell and we've got more companies issuing special dividends before the end of the year. including the one that runs victoria's secrets. you know how p

$700 in september. stuart: yeah, september the 21st at 7:05. this morning, pre-market 520 now, down another $9 from yesterday's close. we'll have you back at opening bell. thank you very much. remember this controversial video we showed it to you yesterday from the california teachers union. it's a cartoon about the tax the rich debate and shows a rich person urinating on poor people, unbelievable. ed asner did the voice for it and he doesn't seem remorseful. watch this. >> remember the video? >> i don't remember a thing i said on t or a word i said on it. i agreed to do it for california teachers. i approve this message. >> okay. i think the most controversial part the people talking about, there's a part testiof it, talk things trickling down and rich people peeing on poor people. >> how disgusting, it should be the reverse, do you have any money? >> yeah. >> can i piss on you? >> oh, dear. that was the producer, sean hannity show, catching up with mr. asner last night. and asner is performing in a show on broadway here in new york city. and we're following the apple story throug
despite weaknesses in europe and even in asia. i think america is poised to take off. stuart: well, the republicans are set to respond today when speaker boehner goes in front of the cameras. will he show signs of retreat or any sign of compromise? remember, the president wants higher tax rates. will john boehner try to move the line that the president has drawn? we will have it for you live here on "varney & company" starting around ten o'clock eastern. then we have darden restaurants, the parent of olive garden, red lobster. it says its businesses could be hurt by bad publicity. darden said it might cut hours for some workers in order to avoid having to provide health insurance for them under obamacare. and a rift in the liberal media because of that. it might be a stretch in my opinion and maybe a stretch people saying they'll stop going to restaurants because of it. and a debate on that. darden, obamacare later in the hour. and breaking news from citigroup, too, it's cutting 11,000 jobs, it calls it part of its repositioning. it says it will save a billion dollars a year and th
recoveries in u.s. history. it helps when you can go straight back and doing what you were doing. stuart: if only we had done in 2009 what ronald reagan did in 1982, but i'm out of time. you know i'm out of time, now that. >> which is set the highest rate at 50%? >> no. >> that's what it was. stuart: it stimulates the private sector, not all government all the time. that's the story. aw austan, i'm sorry, i really am out of time. thank you, sir. more "varney & company" in a moment. >> a strong earthquake hit the coast of japan in the same region where the fukushima plant was devastated last year. no tsunami waves this time around. 7.3 magnitude quake and shook buildings more than 200 miles away in tokoyo, a tsunami warning has now been called off. we've been reporting this for months here on "varney & company." gun sales, they are absolutely booming. and now, smith & wesson, the gun people, they made a profit and they raised their outlook and the stock is going to be up come that opening bell. charles,you're buying gun stocks? >> i've got to it will you, i wanted to feature this on maki
? last night. and the president wants to go over the fiscal cliff and always has for two reasons, stuart, number one, he wants all of the rates to go up. not just on the 1 or 2% top earners. he wants everybody's tax rates to go up and even if you were to confiscate a 100% of the assets for the government for a handful of days. stuart: why would he want everybody to pay taxes to pay more. >> he wants revenue to pay for his monstrous, ever-growing, ever-ravenous government, and he knows the money is with the middle class, not 1%. and the top 1% assets to income you fund the government for about 11 days. the real money is with the middle class he needs their rates to go up. the second part of this is, he wants the defense sequester, 500 billion dollars taken out of defense the next ten years in addition to the already 500 billion taken out of defense and wants that part of the equation as well and that's getting no ink. he wants to go over the cliff. if you're john boehner and your negotiating partner wants to go over the cliff, you're going over the cliff. stuart: let's advance this and ta
obama. stuart: anna wintour reportedly an absolute terror to work for. remember when she was played bye meryl streep in the devil wears prada. portrayed as a monster. >> what are you doing here. >> came to be a journalist and-- >> so you don't read runway. >> no he. >> and before today you had never heard of me. >> no. >> you have no style or sense of fashion. >> i think that depends on what you're-- >> no, no, that wasn't a question. >> oh, i think we should set her on the french. and remember when jon stewart from the daily show made fun of me for this? >> vogue editor anna wintour holds exclusive for-- >> stuart varney that's a little-- i go annoying the president is doing fundraisers, you don't have to put on that accent. anna wintour, you don't need to put that on to make fun of anna wintour. >> hi, i'm anna wintour. >> i take it back, i take it back, varney that was a pretty good impression of anna wintour. i had no idea. stuart: all right, that was funny. we will have a lot more on ambassador anna wintour later, indeed throughout "varney & company" today and including one from th
for you, carol, if we go over the that cliff what happens to the markets? >> well, stuart, i think if we go over the cliff, the markets are going to react negatively, they reacted negatively the last time we revisited the debt ceiling for tarp, so, i don't think that the markets are going to be particularly happy, but i don't know that it's necessarily for the right reasonss i to think that we're going to get a deal here, but i think it's going to end up happening late january, maybe middle of january, but at the end. day, stuart, it doesn't solve any of our problems. stuart: i agree, i agree. >> and i'm so frustrated that we're 13 months in, we've had 13 months to figure it out and we're at the 11th hour. stuart: everybody is. the mood of the country, furious nothing is happening here and politicians are dithering at the last minute. why is it? it doesn't look like a deal is going to get done. a total stop gap and as you say it's not a good deal anyway. why hasn't the stock market fallen out of bed? we're still at 13,000 on the dow. why are we still there? >> what i think usually when c
at cantor fitzgerald so that's helping out a little bit and then twitters sphere, stuart was angry about that instagram move, khloe kardashian, i know you follow that-- >> and they were angry about it and lauren. general motors a moment ago, the treasury is going to stel the 500 million shares that we, the taxpayer, still own. some will be sold at $27.50. we don't get all of our money back, how big a loss we're going to take is not known at this time, but the taxpayer is going to take a loss. look at gm, up nearly 8%, 27.52 right now. we're continuing to follow the big drop in gas prices and that's good news for you. the national average down to 3.22 a gallon. these are triple-a figures. that's a drop of 19 cents in just the past month. it is the lowest, well, let's look at the lowest price in the nation, that's-- i repeat, 2.96 a gallon and that state has company in the two handle club. oklahoma state average is down to 2.99. there are several other states hovering right at the $3 level. how about that? afl-cio chief richard trumka, remember, he visited president obama in the white hous
happening. stuart: that's interesting. i would have thought there would have been a straight forward being gung-ho, get those assault rifles out of here and that would be the majority of opinion, but it's not. the majority of opinion take care of mental illness and let's do something about that is the best way of preventing the massacres. >> and there's another part. we asked specifically about stricter gun control laws. we're going back in the field. we're going to ask about more enforcement the, say background checks and other things, i'm absolutely certain there will be strong support for enforcing laws we have perhaps more diligently than in the past and there will be challenges, but overall, you know, again, what you have is the sense that people want something done. they want to see some action taken. they know that we can't achieve perfect safety, but you know, stuart, if something was done to even save you know, one life in that horror or something could be done to prevent even one future tragedy, that would be a plus. stuart: i am just intrigued, 48% said the best action to preven
records on the rollout. stuart: okay, but right now, i'm seeing it expected to open around $510 a share. >> right. stuart: but i did see it pre-market at 499. just for a brief spell so we broke below very briefly and now we've broken back up again. >> and you have that citigroup downgrade which just piles on to the other analysts who have lowered their expectations on apple. stuart: and there's a switch. all right. john boehner bends and makes the president an offer and it includes higher tax rates on the rich. boehner's proposal, higher rates on incomes over a million dollars a year. that's projected to raise 460 billion over ten years and that's about half the president's revenue raising plan. now, in exchange, the speaker wants the spending cuts. his total package would save 2 trillion dollars in ten years, so, boehner shifts on the principle of tax rates and the ball appears to be in the president's court. how comes the tricky part. the debt ceiling, the president basically wants to do away with it, he wants to be able it to run up as much debt as he pleases. "the washington post" o
discussed here, what is the latest, rich? >> a plan b on the fiscal cliff on taxes, stuart. this is coming from house speaker john boehner who is addressing republicans right now. we have a source in the room telling us that republicans will vote on a plan b in the house. likely this week. it will allow americans to avoid higher tax rates starting on january 1st. this deals with just the tax portion here on different rates. so, the threshold that republicans want is a million dollars. you wouldn't get a tax hike on your rates if you earned less than 1 million dollars annually. so that's a plan b that republicans vote on on the house. house speaker john boehner still wants a grand bargain with president obama. the two sides were drawing closer, last night their deal gave some discouragement to house speaker john boehner, so he's putting a second plan on the table and prefers president obama and they'll take it to-- >> it sounds like speaker boehner cannot sell the deal he's approaching with president obama to his own house members, so he's going to plan b the concentrate only on the tax sid
of the tropical climate and the spanish conquest. archaeologist george stuart. stuart: this is a color facsimile of the dresden codex -- actual size, real colors. it's made on, like the others, on bark paper sized with lime plaster, on which the images were painted with fine hair brushes and pigment in about, oh, five or six different colors. keach: many of these books were discovered by the sixteenth century spanish. they were said to be filled with genealogies, prophesies and religious beliefs. but to the spanish conquerors, they were blasphemous. in 1562, bishop diego de landa ordered them destroyed. "we found a large number of books in these characters, "and as they contained nothing "in which there were not to be seen "superstition and lies of the devil, "we burned them all, "which caused them much affliction." ironically, a book by bishop landa himself proved crucial to the understanding of maya writing. stuart: and in it is everything that he observed in yucatan about the maya, about their ceremonial cycles, their ritual calendars. he even had pictures of the glyphs drawn to put in the ma
. stuart, listen to me. we've still got 24 hours. ah... there's still hope. hope? you know what? i wish i'd never listened to you. it hard enough dying... without knowing all the misery you caused to others. thanks for nothing. [ car door closes ] [ engine starts ] [ dance music playing ] excuse me? i feel totally directionally challenged. could you, like, tell me how to get to the corner of straight and narrow? go away. ooh, touchy much? get over it, morgan. it's just a game, even if you are stretching the rules. what are you talking about? like, duh. you just refused your client's request to jump-start his eternal reward. i didn't turn him down. i talked him out of it. you know, that is so like you, just giving in to your fluffy-bunny feelings for your client, except that is so not the deal. i gave you permission to offer them redemption, not force it on them. look on the bright side. this way, you get to see him squirm for another 24 hours. oh, my god, that is, like, so true. hey, are you trying to trick me? get real, morgan. you lost. i know it. your soon-to-be-ex-client knows it. eve
francisco -- san francisco. the harvey milk foundation which was started by stuart milk and myself, worked to put this on in partnership with the san francisco harvey milk gay democratic club, gay and lesbian democratic club, the harvey milk civil rights academy and of course the gay men's chorus who are performing here tonight. so, on that note i'm going to turn this over to my dear friend stuart who is harvey's nephew and someone himself who has been speaking out all around the world for civil rights and equality for all. stuart? [cheering and applauding] >> thank you. it's very interesting thanksgiving this week. i was mentioning to the moscone family did not fall on this remembrance. and therefore, the milk family, we were all together and we actually had a little bit more joy because we did have a week that separated it. it's a very tough time for my family since 1978. it's difficult to try to explain. i don't think i could have done as good of a job as jonathan, how tough that is. harvey was a part of every milestone, large and small in my life, for 17 years. and i just can't attempt
this year. >> rose: we conclude this evening with a conversation with stuart stevens former chief strategist and advisor to governor mitt romney and the romney campaign. >> working for governor romney was an extraordinary privilege. and it really was an arar. and i think that he was in this race for the right reasons. he was in it out of a sense of what he could do for the country. to be a small part of that was a great privilege. but i think that republicans need to, we have a good menial, we have to do a better job of getting it out. we need to look at how we need to adjust. >> rose: julianna goldman and stuart stevens when we begin. captioning sponsored by rose communications from our studios in new york city, this is charlie rose. begin this evening with politic. less than a month remains for lawmaker to reach a deal before the fiscal cliff deadline. the whitehouse open sists tax rates must rise on higher incomes in order to balance spending cuts but republican leadership remains committed to extending the bush tax cuts for all a tax bracket. brainer offer his response to th
-- >> folks, you have heard stuart's prediction, all the talk about climate change, devastating storms like sandy are just a prelude to a carbon tax. will we get one? that's next. >> let's take a look at the big board. right now the dow jones industrials are down about 31 points, but there's very low volume today. it's a shortened trading session closing at 1 p.m. of course the markets are closed tomorrow for christmas. so facebook news now, the brokerage needham raising its price target on facebook to $33 a share and getting close to that 25. and the research in motion, behind the blackberry, worried after the ceo announcing new price structure and pay for advanced security, but other services would generate less revenue and microsoft hoping for a holiday miracle with new windows 8, but shares are down about 1 1/2%. this morning, in 90 seconds with the fiscal cliff coming, is a carbon tax also on the way? you thought it was gone, not so. that's next. [ male announcer ] you are a business pro. omnipotent of opportunity. you know how to mix business... with business. and you...rent from nat
for me to say yes when stuart and ann asked me to talk a bit on the day that marks the death of george and harvey. and the reason became clear when i sat down to write my words. i'm exhausted by talking about death. i know that's not the subject of today's memorial, but it always happens on the day that george and harvey were shot. and i think i'm tired of remembering them on the worst day of their lives. i wonder that if indeed there is a heaven, and if george and harvey got in, or perhaps they made it to somewhere a little more hip, a little more happening. they might be sitting up there on november 27th of every year and think, oh, lord, not this again. i mean, it's hard for me to imagine that this would be the day that george moscone and harvey milk would want to remember each and every year. don't get me wrong. i'm deeply touched that people remember my father and i do speak for my family in this regard. we are always and every day grateful that we live in a city that does not forget. but there's just something wrong in this notion that the day we remember our lost leaders is the
some sort of magic potion that bring people together. >> stuart? >> can i just ask you, ed, if there's any deal you've heard of that's bandied around here, any deal at all from either side which would cut spending on tuesday morning, new years day? >> no, not a deal that's on the table right now, stuart. that's a good question. now, the white house would argue in the negotiations with speaker way speaker boehner he, the president put a trillion dollar in changes, medicaid, medicare and changes that nancy pelosi and speaker don't want to see. the and white house's defense is look, if the republicans are not going to play ball on revenue and tax increases they're fnot going to put the spending cuts on the table. this started out as a discussion about cutting the debt, cutting the deficit and now what's going to happen is th smallest plans on the table are going to-- are not really going to cut the deficit in the long run and don't have major spending cuts and i noticed at one point when he was asked about the sequester, not just the tax side, but the automatic spending cuts about to ki
. >> stuart bridge was a close friend of ben's. they met in grammar school. ben told stuart that he and his new gir girlfriend had tried oxycodone and they thought it was no big deal. >> it's not something that i'm seeking out, but it's something i've tried. >> anyone else might just shrug off that conversation. but bridge wasn't just a friend. he's also a doctor. and he warned ben about taking oxycodone and about mixing it with alcohol. >> i have seen people die who are on these medications or who oh have experimenteded with these medications. >> the line between experimentation and death, it turns out, is tenuous. oxycodone and other pain killers like it are what's called central nervous system or cns depressants. they slow down the body's vital functions, breathing, heart rate, blood pressure. that's not usually a problem when the pills are prescribed for you. but when you add them to other cns depressants, like alcohol or other prescription drugs, the effect is multiplied. the nervous system slows and is slows until breathing, heart rate, brain function, all grind to a halt. ben's dead
and what we found in the book. stuart will relate this more to fischer and what will be happening tomorrow. i am particularly glad to be doing this at cato because it stood for a lot of the values in the book. i first became aware of kato in the year 1980s when i was doing community organizing the in the evenings thinking about policy issues and going back to graduate school. and a big issue was social security reform and start trying to analyze what was happening and came up with this idea that social security has been structured, providing enormous subsidies people were receiving more benefits than they paid in. the interesting thing was the subsidies were largest for the upper middle-class. .. >> and another analogy to our work on affirmative action is at the time, back in the early '80s, imagine how easy it would have been to fix social security's problems and put it on a sound basis. thirty years later it's going to be a much harder problem to deal with. and affirmative action, i think, is analogous, because today we have perhaps the greatest degree of racial peace and in many senses
